Melaleuca by Frank VanderSloot and found at melaleuca.com, is a multi-level marketing health and beauty aids company.
It focuses on recruiting downline recruiters more than selling its product.
It would just barely brush the border of a pyramid scheme if it wasn’t for the actual product being there.
Stating right from the start it was very easy to find a multitude of complaints, rip off-site reports, and negative reviews about Melaleuca.
As well as Melaleuca’s cult-like reps and allegations of the products being very unsafe.
These are all red flags to be wary of.
Mostly, the primary issue we have with MLM businesses like Melaleuca is that the majority of people, 99%+, that get involved in any MLM business opportunities will never succeed at them.
This is certainly no exception.
Many complaints about Melaleuca deal with sales team misrepresentations when trying to recruit people.
But some of the most disturbing issues registered online have been of actual unauthorized charges made to the credit card people used to get involved with the company.
Money spent with no forthcoming products was the next most daunting issue I found complained about.
By enough people for it to be worrisome.
The next problem was Melaleuca reps taking the money and calling it a consulting fee after they told you initially it was to buy your first line of product.
Then there are grievances about people canceling their involvement with Melaleuca, yet still getting charged by them on their cards for months and months afterward.
Several of their products actually list warnings of being hazardous to your health, as well as the danger of toxicities.
Melaleuca Reps are told not to say Melaleuca products are non-toxic, but to say they are non-caustic.
This is more an issue of integrity.
However you slice it, Melaleuca is definitely not a business we will ever recommend.
Thanks for reading the review
